Vision Support Committee

Welcome

The Vision Support Committee offers a variety of services ranging from consultations on Deaf and Blind issues to referrals to appropriate NTID personnel to support Deaf and blind/Usher Syndrome students. Student accommodations might include:  Deaf and Blind interpreters, closed circuit television systems (CCTV), class/lab vision assessment, large monitors, and notetakers. The committee also has a list of faculty/staff who have experience working with members of Deaf and Blind community who can provide support and/or consultations. 

The committee’s goals include providing support for Deaf and Blind students as well as faculty/staff working with them, developing the resources for deaf and blind students, and to offer suggestions to the NTID administration on how to continue our support for Deaf and Blind students.
